The Pearson Countess is a classic. Designed by John Alden, she features traditional lines, a full keel with an attached rudder, a large flush deck, and a spacious cockpit.
WINDBELL II has been carefully maintained for over 30 years by her second owner. She has been only lightly used in New England waters. Her hull gelcoat is original, and it sparkles. Both her mainsail and mizzen are equipped with in-mast furling, and the headsail and mainsail furling systems are electrically powered. An extremely thorough log has been kept of her use, backed up by manuals for all her systems. For her age, WINDBELL II appears to be in remarkable shape. A recent price reduction reflects the owner's desire to find WINDBELL II a good new home. WINDBELL II has been out of the water for two years. Close offers are encouraged.
